October 1, 2018: Quick Notes on the Month

To me, October begins the season of celebrations. It’s my favorite time of year, from Halloween month, right up until February (my birthday month). There’s also fun activities taking place in the reading front this month. I’m setting a goal to read consistently throughout the month of October. Instagram has this fun reading challenge that blends reading and photos throughout the month, and I’m looking forward to exploring the photos.

September 22, 2018: Autumn in Whippany & NYC

Autumn is a special time of year. As much as I miss summer, I enjoy the cooler weather. It allows me to wear longer length boots for a few months out of the year. It’s also an exciting time for Halloween season and pumpkins. I’m very much looking forward to going to the local pumpkin patch in a couple weeks.

To begin the Autumn season, Andy and I went to Whippany this afternoon. There was a Ukrainian festival in that area, filled with dance performances and great vendors. I purchased my first Ukrainian-style shirt! I always wanted to buy one, and this year I didn’t want to leave without getting one. I’m very happy with what I found.

In a short while we’re heading to the Imperative Reaction show in New York City. I haven’t seen Imperative Reaction since their last performance in NYC, 6 years ago. I was still living in New York then, and that show took place days before Superstorm Sandy hit the area. That period of time will always be memorable to me, in many ways.

I’m hoping that Autumn will bring many positive moments. This time of year is filled with fun gatherings and gathering with family, and I’m looking forward to many encounters.
